The egg was first. In the simplest sense, there were eggs (insects, dinosaurs, etc) long before there were chickens.

Secularly, and if you mean eggs containing chickens, then the egg was again first. Evolutionarily, there has to be a line where one would separate the proto-chicken from a de facto chicken. Thus, wherever that line is placed, there will be a point at which a proto-chicken lays an egg containing a chicken. At the point just before that egg is laid, there will be no chickens (only proto-chickens)... but that egg, when laid, will represent the world's first chicken, once hatched. Thus, the chicken egg (defined as an egg containing a chicken) came before the first chicken.
